Mongoose XR-PRO Mountain Bike from Walmart – Is it worth $349?

The Mongoose XR-Pro is a full suspension 29er mountain bicycle available through Walmart.com, but not sold in stores. It features an aluminum frame, double walled alloy rims, Zoom stem and seat posts, WTB saddle, and a great paint finish.

There are a few odd choices. The tires are ultra-generic and are void of any branding. They also feel like the sidewalls may be a bit thin. The coil rear suspension is most likely junk, but most of the people buying this bike are buying it to build it out. I have seen where people claim to add $500-1000 to this bike and make it perform better than local bike shop bikes costing $2000-3000. Who knows if that is true, but I may upgrade a few items if the bike does well on the trail. Riding aside, it does look good! Though I wouldn’t recommend this for someone that didn’t plan on upgrading many of the components.

I have a black mongoose (it’s also purple and pink in the design.) and I got it from Walmart… it was $100 which is a fair deal I guess, but I don’t know I think it’s a good bike? But I think it’s not that heavy haha, probably cause I carry it 24/7 and I’m used to it.

Urban Desert says:

Can this bike take a 29 x 2.4 now I have the mongoose stat 2.4 and it can take a 29 x 2.4 even tho it came with 29 x 1.95 and I see this bike comes with 29 x 2.1. I am looking at buying this bike and upgrade it like I did with my stat 2.4 that I used on SC400 endurance race… I’m looking ahead to 2018 race and if this bike can take a 29 x 2.4 then I will get it.
